DHA is an Omega-3 Fatty Acid that is essential for brain development – especially in kids. As a mom, I’m always looking for natural ways to get important nutrients into my kids’ bodies. One source that I have come to love recently is fairlife ultra-filtered milk. It has 3.5x the DHA versus the leading DHA Omega-3 milk. This is a serious powerhouse of nutrition. Now, how do we get our kids to drink it?!
You all know how we love our morning smoothies in this house. I find smoothies to be one of the easiest and surefire ways to get lots of nutrients into my kids bodies first thing in the morning. Let your kids pick out their favorite fruits and vegetables to throw into the blender along with a great big splash of fairlife. The fun part for the kids is getting to press the “go” button on the blender and watch it all whizz up together into a smooth, creamy, and cool breakfast. The fun part for me is knowing that every cup of fairlife SuperKids ultra-filtered milk is a good source of 9 essential vitamins and minerals.
At dinnertime my kids love to drink a big glass of fairlife along with their meal. I make sure to include an array of vegetables, proteins, and starches on their plates. A nice cold glass of milk is the perfect accompaniment to balance out the meal. Make sure to use lots of color in dinner to add variety and excitement, too. Try some crispy smashed potatoes, Sweet Balsamic Glazed Chicken, and a bright Shaved Vegetable Salad for dinner.
Make it fun to learn about food and taste new things! Talk to your kids about where milk comes from, what DHA is (now that you have all the deets!), and turn it into a game. Moo like a cow, roar like a lion who is about to devour lunch, see who can blow the biggest milk bubbles though their straw! You can even serve chocolate milk to accompany these fun games because fairlife SuperKids Chocolate ultra-filtered milk has 50% less sugar than the leading DHA Omega-3 milk.
